I googled RAYBESTOS 88PG.\n\nI know the Chrysler part # is 4026636 and Bendix is RAF88.\n\nThe NAPA part # was SS88 but now that doesn't work.

\nYes, I believe the torque multiplier method is the easier way to go!

just a little fyi, make sure you "re torque" those lug nuts after about 100 miles or so and then again after a few more hundred miles. they WILL loosen up ! whether from a little dirt or alignment of the wheels as they roll. after 20 yrs and 3 sets of tires i'm speaking from experience.

I've had one front drum out of balance for the last 20 yrs. any one know of where in new England they can be balanced ? I've been attaching weights till it gets close with the wheel off the ground. not perfect but it took the low speed wobble out. my tires dry rot before they wear out anyway.
